First up, Chad continues to talk about Terror suspects and the way that political storms start. As our guest on the show, Mayor JB Lawrence of Blowing Rock, to talk about keeping the town beautiful. New sidewalks, pavement, and trees in order to keep the town beautiful. Talking about Winterfest at the lake, one of their small town festivals, the last weekend in December they hold their celebration. The Polar Plunge through the lake is a town tradition. In 1999, Mayor Lawrence talks about his creation of the Polar Plunge, and his commitment to it. A winter feast, a winter fashion show, the Polar Plunge, the Chili Cook off, wine tasting, and many more activities are available during the event, and everyone is welcome.
After the break, Francis De Luca comes on the show to talk about the Presidential election and candidates. Will Donald Trump be our new president? Possibly. But, why is it so hard for people in the political field to use the term ‘radical’? Trump doesn’t even say ISIS, according to De Luca, “Since when do we not refer to our enemies as they refer to themselves.” Will Hillary Clinton be able to rebuild herself into the protector of the United States? Will she be able to obtain the position of War Hawk? Will she be that candidate and try to out-tough the Republican candidate? Can she keep out country safe?
When we came back from the break, Jim from Civitas to talk about the Trump Rally and the way the media made it more dramatic than it really was. Jim addresses the way that crowds were stampeding into the arena and how Trump gives his speech in a better way that Romney did? “He doesn’t have a powerpoint presentation, he goes up, gives his speech, talks about some issues, and any questions that were to extensive to answer were addressed ‘hey, we have a beautiful website with that answer on it. Go there.’” Chad asks about a curiosity factor, or if they were a majority supports. “It’s one thing that’s hard to tell, were they supporting? Of course. But will they support Trump in the polls? Maybe?Jim also said that the protestors were the focus of the media, but Trump wasn’t fazed. He was more amused than he was upset. He connected with the people and made them laugh, he also made a prediction that the media would focus on the protestors more than the things that Trump said. And he was right.
To end the show, Chad summarizes the show and talks more about how terrorism needs a definition.
